Mineralogy: Tiger Iron (silicon dioxide), also called Tiger Eye, is a composed mineral through the process of Crocidolite alteration in which the fibrous mineral Crocidolite (iron and sodium) is transformed and dissolved away by embedded quartz. The embedded quartz, which is primarily golden tiger’s eye, red jasper, and hematite, creates contrasting bands of color and luster. Tiger Eye is a semi-precious gemstone used heavily in ornamentation.
